|151-0125-00L||Hydrodynamics and Cavitation||4 credits||3G||O. Supponen|
|Abstract||This course builds on the foundations of fluid dynamics to describe hydrodynamic flows, with a focus on interfacial and surface tension effects, lubrication and surface waves, and provides an introduction to cavitation: theory, measurement techniques, and industrial and medical applications.|
|Objective||The main learning objectives of this course are: |
1. Identify and describe dominant effects in liquid fluid flows through physical modelling.
2. Explain tension, nucleation and phase-change in liquids.
3. Describe hydrodynamic cavitation and its consequences in physical terms.
4. Recognise experimental techniques and industrial and medical applications for cavitation.
|Content||The course gives an overview on the following topics: hydrostatics, surface tension effects and capillarity, lubrication theory, surface waves, water hammer, tension in liquids, phase change. Cavitation: single bubbles (nucleation, dynamics, collapse), cavitating flows (attached, cloud, vortex cavitation). Industrial and medical applications, and measurement techniques.|
